The BC Hockey League has approved moving the Wenatchee Wild to the Interior Division next season.
The Wild have played in the Mainland Division the last two years.
The league also says its entered a partnership agreement that will lead to every player undergoing base-line concussion tests prior to playing in games.
“The initial testing will be completed at the 2017 Bauer BCHL Showcase,” says a BCHL release. “When new players join the league, they will be tested prior to competing in their first game. The partnership is part of the BCHL’s ongoing efforts to ensure player safety.”
Also confirmed at the league’s AGM in Richmond, BCHL clubs will be pursuing upgrades to their broadcast systems to get high-definition video for pay-per-view customers on HockeyTV.
Several BCHL teams had HD in place last season and the goal is to have all arenas with upgraded cameras for 2017-18.
The dates for the 2017 Bauer BCHL Showcase are Sept. 20 to 24 at Prospera Centre in Chilliwack.
All games will take place on the arena’s main sheet of ice.
